“What Comes Next may be Katzenbach’s best book since The Traveler and is even more relevant. . . . This is an exceptional novel—and a most troubling one.”
“William Roberts turns in an effective, nuanced performance in this audio edition. His evocative reading captures the horror of the dark basement in which Jennifer Riggins finds herself held hostage, and his rendition of Jennifer’s inner monologue is sincere and touching. Roberts also successfully navigates a potential minefield in his balanced portrayal of the convicted sex offender. . . . [An] entertaining listen.”
“Roberts’ exacting voice and reading pace fit this psychological thriller. . . . [He] instinctively emphasizes certain words to increase tension or indicate possible clues while never losing momentum. . . . Don’t miss a word of this horrifying tale of depravity.”
